Coconut Crusted Tofu 

Tofu is one of those things that you either like, or you don’t. I’m in camp like. I’ve been eating it since my vegetarian phase in my teenage days, and I’ve enjoyed it ever since. I’ve had enough practice making tofu dishes now that I’d like to think I can make doubters into believers. Tofu […]

Edamame and Greens Salad

Confession time: I’m a salad fanatic. If I haven’t had my daily greens, or some sort of salad during the day, I feel a little lost. I love the crunch of a good salad, the textures! And if this makes me weird – so be it! I’ll be over here… being weird and enjoying my […]

Zesty Tahini Sauce

Holy Basil Iced Tea

I’ve been doing something brilliant lately: making time for myself. You never know how easy it can be. For me, it can be something as simple as sitting outside for ten minutes in the sun and just being. Actually, that is exactly what I’ve been doing more of lately. Yup, here in Canada, summer is upon […]

Pink Chocolate Coconut Bark 

You know how some people say “I have a sweet tooth”? Well I have sweet TEETH. That’s right – a whole mouthful. But as I have gotten older, the 5 cent candy aisle at the nearest convenience store just won’t cut it anymore. I want sweet, but I always want beneficial. I want “treat yourself”, […]
